Hyundai partners with quantum computer company IonQ for battery development

Quantum computer maker IonQ said that it is partnering with Hyundai to use quantum computers to develop more effective batteries.

The partnership will create a battery chemistry model to simulate the structure and energy of lithium oxide, to help improve the performance, costs, and safety of lithium batteries, IonQ said.

Researchers believe quantum computers could operate millions of times faster than today’s advanced supercomputers, potentially making tasks such as mapping complex molecular structures and chemical reactions much faster.

For that to happen, the quantum computers still need to scale up further, say experts. Despite this, companies, from banks to pharmaceutical

VICTORY: Google Releases “disable 2g” Feature for New Android Smartphones

Last year Google quietly pushed a new feature to its Android operating system allowing users to optionally disable 2G at the modem level in their phones. This is a fantastic feature that will provide some protection from cell site simulators, an invasive police surveillance technology employed throughout the country. We applaud Google for implementing this much needed feature. Now Apple needs to implement this feature as well, for the safety of their customers. 

What is 2G and why is it vulnerable?
2G is the second generation of mobile communications, created in 1991. It’s an old technology from a time when
